A report of the massacre of U.S. soldiers by Indians. When a lame cow wandered from the Mormon train and into an Indian camp, the Indians killed the cow. The Mormons went to the fort and reported that their cow had been stolen. Lieutenant Grattan, with twenty soldiers, went to the Indian camp to take the Indian who killed the cow into custody, but the Indians would not surrender him; the Lieutenant commanded his men to fire, and the Indians fought back and killed all of the soldiers. After this massacre, the writer of the article (James Bordeau) was forced to give up all his possessions to the Indians, who were “pillaging” the traders of Fort Laramie. From the Missouri Republican.
